Roxy Flash

Hello Bloggerettes! I am still unbelievably sick but I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. Thank goodness! Ugh, so zero motivation is happening in these parts however tons of cartoons and spicy food are happening. Anywho today's post features an awesome gradient of Zoya Roxy(my favorite polish EVAR!), a raspberry jelly filled with magenta glitter, and L'oreal Amazon's Flash, a metallic gold. For the life of me I cannot do the sponge gradient method, so I do the 'paint down' method.

 Roxy, 2 coats.

The paint down method is when you start painting your gradient at your tips then bring the color down. I really like this effect better than sponging, etc. I began with 1 coat of CND Stickey, 2 coats Roxy, 1 thick coat of Gelous, gradient of Amazon's Flash, and 1 thick coat of Seche Vite. Gelous is essential as Roxy is a very hungry glitter. Trust me, she is worth the effort! Amazon's Flash was part of a limited edition L'oreal set from last year so you may not find it in stores. But she is a nice deep warm gold, almost mustard like. Which gradient method do you prefer?

Thanks for looking!


  1. Neat effect. Could you do a tutorial?

  2. Love it! Remind me of Effie Trinket's nails in The Hunger Games :) Roxy is stunning!

  3. such a lovely deep colour and with the gold it looks brilliant. would love to see a tutorial aswell!

  4. I didnt think there was a Zoya left that I wanted after the all the sales in the last few weeks - but leave it to you to prove me wrong! Gorgeous!

  5. Thank you so much ladies! I'm glad you all love it. I will definitely consider doing a tutorial, I've never done one before!


I love and appreciate all feedback! All I ask is that there be no spamming on my posts. Thank you.
